After reports that Soledad O'Brien recently was booted from her morning show, "Starting Point," the CNN anchor is saying she's "really happy" with the way things turned out, even calling it a "win-win."
"I think it has worked out best for everyone," she told the Huffington Post.
"We did not get a lot of promotion. We did not get a lot of marketing. We weren't fully staffed," she said. "That's just what happened."
"I don't look at things as, 'Was I disappointed to have a show that didn't have a lot of support?'" she said. "We did a really good job."
Miss O'Brien said she and CNN head Jeff Zucker held different views for the future of the network. She said she knew early on that she wasn't going to be a part of Mr. Zucker's plan.
CNN's Erin Burnett and new hire Chris Cuomo likely will take over her time slot.
